's gun-control proposals. while the government has come out against the plan, the numbers are pretty stark. 53% are favorable. 41%, unfavorable. more interesting as you go into the poll, the favorables are much more intense than the unfavorables. which means that we've heard for some time, richard wolffe, you know, the gun owners are so intense, and they're the ones that are going to always make phone calls and they're the ones that are always going to be engaged. in this poll and i'm sure we'll see it in other polls, a majority of americans are more intense about passing some sane gun regulation than are those small groups of people that are going to fight the political death over assault weapons and being able to have high-capacity magazines. >> a couple of things. first of all, if you break down the individual proposals, the support is even higher, right? universal background checks, you get way higher than 50%. and those numbers reflect the president's own favorability right now which says this is the moment when he can actually push this through because his own numbers are so hi
cut spending. if that means shut down the government, shut down the government. >> i think in williamsburg we saw one possibility, which was paul ryan and others within the republican party saying to the caucus, we can't win this fight publicly. let the debt ceiling go because we're going to be blamed for the economic fallout. let's push that down the road kick the can down the road, as they say, and try to get some budget out of the senate and try to get some real spending cuts in the next three months. so paul ryan and others within the caucus are seeing a longer game here than is this freshman senator from texas. >> but if you ask paul ryan what he wants to do on gun control, he would say, i don't want to do anything on gun control. you've talked to moderate republicans -- >> what about registration? >> the only thing they might do is something on registration. >> background checks. >> that's it. no idea that you're banning weapons. no chance. >> registration is the worst. >> put it on tape. 5 0% chance it passes. >> good because hunters need 30 bullets
. reinvigorating a mature nation means giving government to give people the tools to compete but then opening up a wide field so they do so ruak cowsly creatively. it means spending more here but de regulating more there. it means facing the fact we do have to choose between current benefits to seniors and investments in our future, and that to pretend we don't face that choice as obama did is effectively to sacrifice the future to the past. >> jonathan, first, what do you think of this speech and secondly, what do you think of david's column? >> i thought the president's speech was terrific, a progressive vision for the country. the guy won twice and ran on all the things he talked about yesterday, inclusion, balanced approach to the nation's problems. when it comes to david brooks' column, as mika was reading, i was thinking, how is that different from what the president actually said? i mean, he's talking about how, you know, what he wants to do is what he's been saying all along, a balanced approach. we have to take care of our seniors and take care of the middle class. we have to take care
the enforcement of the federal debt limit for at least three months, allowing the government to keep borrowing money to pay for all of its current obligations. in exchange, the house gop'ers want the democratic-controlled senate to do something they haven't done in 1,365 days, pass a budget. something that body hasn't done since 2009. now, instead of demanding spending cuts, republicans have added a provision to the bill that would suspend lawmakers' own paychecks if their chamber fails to pass a budget by april 15th. that's a lot like actually the no labels, no budget, no pay plan that that organization's been dealing with, talking about for a long time. michael steele, i think that's a great idea. >> i do, too. >> if you don't do your job -- >> why get paid for it? >> and the democrats in the senate haven't done their job in that many days, why pay them? >> i don't think you should. in fact, if i had my way, it would be retro. so i'd take back the money we paid you over the last four years for not doing your job. and i think, you know, again, some people say that's a political toy or a tacti
interest rates. but you had this government come in in 2010 which believed that austerity was the way to go. lots of people here, david broder urged obama to do a cameron. we've got to do some of what the brits are doing and have harsh austerity right away because that will improve confidence. and don't listen to those economists who say it will send them back into it sent them back into recession. britain is, in fact, seeing that anti-keynesian policies don't work. and we didn't do the same thing. and so we're -- we have a recovery. it's not as strong as i'd like, but we have a real recovery here. the rest of europe, my god. i mean, they have a structural -- sorry -- economist jargon. they had a problem which is they have one currency without one goth, and that's a pretty deadly combination. and that's led to the situation of incredibly harsh austerity in ireland, greece, spain. and there you have depression-level rates of unemployment. it's catastrophic. financial markets have stabilized. but that's all. >> yeah. >> okay. so given all these differences between the different countries and
, smaller government, more free markets and doing that over years. it takes a sustained effort. if you look at the democratic success that thiey've had throuh technology and organization, a lot of that's been in the works for ten years. the stuff you can't just flick a switch. and for republicans, there's a sense of urgency because those demographic trends don't get better. they get worse. the share of the electorate that's white is going down, not up. and nothing's going to change that. >> jim vandehei, lip-syncing his way through the latest beltway news. >> well done. >> jim, thanks. we'll see you. >>> coming up, manti te'o speaks out on camera for the first time since the whole fake girlfriend story broke last week. we'll play some of that for you when we come back. >>> time now for a little sports. cnbc's brian shactman back with us at the table. this is getting a little crazier by the day. >> every time you hear more about it, the more confused you kind of get. >> let's see -- this is the first on-camera interview with manti te'o since this whole story last week broke about his fake gi
